10% of each recertification group is randomly chosen to have their continuing education activities audited.
Notification of selection for mandatory audit will be included with the recertification form received by NCCs at the end of their five-year recertification period.
These NCCs must submit copies of documentation for the 100 required hours of continuing education.
Forms and payment must be returned with continuing education documents in order for recertification to be complete.
Voluntary Audits for Recognition
NCCs who wish to receive recognition for their outstanding achievement in continuing education may elect to have their continuing education activities audited voluntarily.
Voluntary audits are available to NCCs who have accrued 130 or more contact hours.
NCCs may apply for the Voluntary Recognition Audit during the last twelve months of their current five-year cycle, or the first twelve months following recertification.
A $45.00 fee is required.
Those NCCs who pass the audit will receive a certificate recognizing their commitment to continuing education in the field of counseling, a letter from the President and CEO, and notation in the NBCC newsletter.
This process does not take the place of formal recertification.
